Barolo Cannubi Damilano 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

"This is a big step up in quality for Damilano, who now controls the most vineyards in the great Cannubi -- about 11 hectares. Sensual aromas of dried flowers, sweet fruits and chocolate follow through to a full body, with fine tannins and a delicious finish. Very fine indeed. Chewy...96" JamesSuckling.com 07/12

Damilano Wine Company is one of the oldest wineries in Barolo with historic traditions. The Damilano family business dates back to 1890 when Giuseppe Borgogno, the great grandfather of the winery’s current owners, began to vinify his own estate wines. It is with great passion that Giacomo Damilano, the founder’s son-in-law, developed with his children a love for the vineyards, selecting and maintaining them with great care in order to improve the quality of the wines. Over time, the winery’s production was transformed into a jewel that was passed down with pride in 1997 to Giacomo’s grandchildren, who continue to manage the winery today. Barolo Cannubi is the flagship wine of Damilano. Produced from the noble Nebbiolo, this wine benefits from the generous, calcareous-clay soil with a good quantity of sand that is found on the prestigious Cannubi hill. An old vine wine, Barolo Cannubi is crafted from vineyards planted in 1935 with desirable southern exposure. Wine Enthusiast Magazine chose this as one of their Top 100 Wines of 2015. They scored it 95 points and said "Fragrant blue flower, perfumed berry, leather, cake spice and a balsamic note are some of the scents you'll find on this gorgeous, forward Barolo. The delicious palate offers raspberry, wild cherry, cinnamon, white pepper clove and tobacco. Ripe, polished tannins make this already accessible but it will also age well for a decade or more. Enjoy 2016–2023."

Sweet cherry, plum and licorice flavors permeate this rich, lacy red. Features solid texture, a sense of elegance and good balance, with firm tannins for support. Finishes with spice accents. Best from 2017 through 2030. 750 cases made.

The 2010 Barolo Cannubi shows great definition and staying power within a delicate and feminine framework. The wine is characterized by a luminous garnet color, mild consistency and pretty menthol highlights. Drink: 2017–2032.

This elegant, expressive red is packed with sweet cherry and strawberry fruit, with leather and spice flavors. The ripe tannins need a few years to integrate fully. Long and detailed on the finish. Best from 2016 through 2030.

The following three single-vineyard expressions all show evident oak tones that need more time to integrate with three to five more years of bottle age. The 2009 Barolo Cannubi is the most feminine and delicate of the three, with fragrant floral tones and bright fruit to distinguish it. The wine is subtle and strong at the same time with a medium build and impressive staying power. You do, however, get lots of spice and roasted coffee at the onset that should diminish with time. This wine is built to last longest with silky, polished tannins. Anticipated maturity: 2016–2026.

Good full red. More balsamic aromas of resin, menthol and truffle. Then more concentrated and backward than the Lecinquevigne, but less sweet and giving today. Finishes with dusty, building tannins that betray a slight dryness. Needs time.
